A large population-based case-control study was carried out to investigate the association between vasectomy and prostate cancer risk in black and in white men in the United States.
Study subjects resided in the geographic areas covered by the population-based cancer registries of the Georgia Center for Cancer Statistics, or the Metropolitan Detroit Cancer Surveillance System, or in 10 counties included in the cancer registry of the New Jersey State Health Department.
Cases for this study were men aged 40-79 years identified from pathology and outpatient records at hospitals covered by these registries, newly diagnosed with pathologically confirmed prostate cancer between August 1, 1986, and April 30, 1989.
